Rafael Benitez Sacked by Inter

Inter Milan has confirmed that they have sacked manager Rafael Benitez after just half a year of being appointed


The move was expected as Benitez made comments about the board after beating TP Mazembe last Saturday to win the World Club Championship

“There are three possibilities for the club,” said Benitez. “One, 100% support for the coach and buy four or five players to build a stronger team with competition among the players to be able to carry on winning matches and trophies.

“Two, carry on like this without a project, without planning, and go ahead with one person to blame, for the whole season.

“The third, is to speak to my agent to reach an agreement if there is not this support. Simple.”

Inter president Massimo Moratti did not take these comments positively and said that the comments

“were not suitable for the situation”

before adding it was

“not the moment to ask for reinforcements”.

The saga has ended in a bitter note for former Liverpool & Valancia manager Benitez as he has been removed by the Inter board.

A club statement read:

“Inter thank Rafael Benitez for his work in leading his team to success in the Italian Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup”
